One of the oldest cities in Europe
Dating back over 3,000 years, and considered “the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in Europe”, the southwestern port of Cádiz is perched on a narrow strip of land surrounded by brilliant blue waters. Stroll through the barrios and narrow alleyways of the Old Town, with stops along Plaza San Antonio, Plaza de Mina, and Plaza de la Catedral, where you can see one of the city’s most famous landmarks, the Cádiz Cathedral.
In the El Pópulo district, you’ll find the second largest Roman theater in the world (which was constructed in 1st century BC), go to Tarifa for beautiful beaches, a variety of watersports, and great views of Morocco, or simply enjoy a traditional meal of Andalusian specialties like gazpacho, fried fish, Iberian ham, and a glass of Jerez sherry.
And if that’s not enough to fill your day, less than 80 miles away are the abundant attractions of Seville.
